Introduction

At the end of 2013 Tomas Roos invited me to join the team of HappyPancake, largest free dating site in Sweden. It was initially written in ASP.NET with MS SQL Database server, soon to become a rather complex solution that was expensive to scale.

Together with Pieter Joost, our small distributed team of 3 people started redesigning this site towards a simpler design that would be easier to evolve in the future.

This is the story of that project.
